PDE8B(redirected from OTTHUMP00000222108)
PDE8BA gene on chromosome 5q13.3 that encodes a cAMP-specific cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase, which hydrolyses the second messenger cAMP to AMP and thus plays a role in regulating physiological processes.
PDE8B mutations are linked to autosomal dominant striatal degeneration.
